Our greatest goal is to give you the healthy, beautiful smile that you've always wanted. We understand that choosing to receive orthodontic treatment is a big decision, and we respect your reasons for wanting to improve the way you look and feel. Our practice will work with you every step of the way to make sure that your orthodontic care is as rewarding as possible. Our practice utilizes the latest technology, offering a variety of safe and gentle treatment options to give you the customized, individual care you deserve.
Every smile starts with an initial consultation!
Your initial consultation will give you the opportunity to meet our team, learn more about orthodontics, receive a complimentary initial exam, and find out which treatment options will best meet your needs. During your initial consultation, we will:
- Review your dental and medical history forms
- Provide a complete oral exam, with X-rays, to determine if treatment is necessary
- Help you create a customized treatment plan
- Discuss all financial information, insurance options, and payment plans
Our team will be glad to answer any questions you may have, and we will provide all of the information that you need to determine which treatment is right for you. Please contact our practice to schedule your initial consultation. We look forward to meeting you soon!
What happens after the initial consultation?
You're one step closer to achieving the smile you've always wanted! After your consultation, we will schedule an appointment to take photographs and moulds of your teeth and one additional x-ray. This is called your 'records' appointment. Dr. Geran will then fully evaluate your records and create a customized and detailed treatment plan just for you. On the day that you are scheduled to begin treatment, Dr. Geran will place your braces or new orthodontic appliance. This appointment generally takes about one to two hours. During this time our team will be available to make sure that you are as comfortable as possible and that you have all the information you need to take care of your braces/appliance.
Visiting the orthodontist about every four to eight weeks is an important part of your orthodontic treatment. Our practice will work with you to make sure that your appointments are as convenient as possible.
Your time is important to us. If you're running late or need to reschedule, please call us, and we will do everything we can to accommodate you. When you're ready to schedule your first appointment, contact our practice, and our friendly scheduling coordinator will assist you. We're looking forward to working with you.
In addition to convenient and comfortable appointments, we offer our patients online services:
- check appointment dates online
- see your account balance and insurance payments
- print out receipts for flex plan reimbursement and tax documentation
- view treatment images and x-rays
- receive appointment reminder e-mails
- sign up for text reminders to your cell phone
Visiting the dentist during orthodontic treatment
It is very important that you continue to visit your family dentist once every six months, even during your orthodontic treatment, for teeth cleanings and routine dental checkups. If extra dental care is needed, we will be happy to coordinate with your family dentist to make sure that you are receiving the best care possible.
